Terri Striegel's Mother at Father
In our series to celebrate Father's Day, we turn to our very own Terri Striegel, who will tell us a little about her dad, and how he influenced her life.
"When I was a senior in high school, my dad did research on the best job opportunities for women. Knowing that I enjoyed math, he suggested that I study accounting in college. He knew that I approached situations in a very "black and white, no gray" manner down to the smallest detail. I am proudly the daughter of a Christian, army artilleryman."
Does your dad love big red wines? If so, we encourage you to give him the gift of our La Vaquera.

Ripe blackberries and currants, fruit compote, pie spices, and caramel jump from the glass of this effusive wine. This cowgirl doesn’t hold anything back. It fills your senses with dark fruits layered with more subtle and complex notes of tobacco and fresh bread. In the mouth, this wine has a powerful entry with firm tannins and ripe fruit balanced by a bright acidity that carries this wine to a long and dense finish.

It would almost be Kentucky Derby time... This year, for the first time since WWII, the Kentucky Derby, is postponed. But, you don't have to wait to get in the mood! Join us in mixing up a Red Mare Sauvignon Blanc Mint Julep and watching this great YouTube Video of the Derby's Greatest Moments:

And, until Happy Hour comes, you can learn about our Red Mare, the horse that inspired the name of our brand. She was a racehorse. She never made it to the Derby, but she certainly won my heart.
My mission when buying her was to give an ex-racehorse a new life as a show and pleasure horse. I thought I could train her up and then sell her to a good home in a year or two, thereby giving me the funds to purchase another x-racehorse and give that horse a second chance. Well, if you know anything about red mares, you know that this didn't turn out as planned. Paradigm (as is her name) had a few things to teach me, and it has taken her 15 years to do so. She taught me more than I ever dreamed of teaching her, and she is now teaching young students the foundations of riding.
Get into the Derby mood with our twist on the traditional Mint Julep. With fewer calories and lower alcohol, it's a great summer sipper to pair with the Run for the Roses!

We take an exceptional amount of pride in our Alpha Mare wines. That is because we take an extraordinary amount of care while producing them. With super small production levels, we can scrutinize every detail that goes into these wines. We laboriously barrel-ferment our Alpha Mare Red to intensify color, improve oak integration, and create complexity. We make our Alpha Mare White to age, modeled after the white wines of Bordeaux, this wine is a blend of Sauvignon Blanc clones and aged an extra year in light-toast barrels for exceptional depth and complexity.
Listen to what Master of Wine and Editor in Chief of The Wine Advocate, Lisa Perotti-Brown has to say about our 2015 Alpha Mare Red:
“Blended of 89% Cabernet Sauvignon and 11% Malbec, the deep garnet-purple colored 2015 Alpha Mare is youthful with black and red currants, underbrush and black pepper notes plus wafts of bay leaves and cedar. Full, muscular, firm and chewy in the mouth, it has appealing freshness and an earthy finish. Give it a couple of years in bottle and drink it over the next 15+” 92+ points
This wine has now had a few years stored in our optimal temperature cellar, and now it is ready for you.

We make a tiny amount of two very special wines. Alpha Mare is a nickname that I was given many years ago. I decided to lend it to our top tier wine. Everyting about this wine has been touched and retouched by me. I’ve been given “cart blanche” with fruit sourcing, barrel selection, fermentation style and packaging design.
6 bottles are beautifully presented in a gift box with my own artwork. When the quote came in to design the box that I wanted, I decided to try my own hand… I’m pleased with the result. It is a lovely, sturdy six pack lay down box designed with a tooled leather pattern from an old saddle.
The label of this wine features Paradigm, my own red mare horse. She had a photo shoot with Peter Samuels, a celebrated animal photographer in San Francisco. The back label features a photo of my mother, grandmother and aunt, all horseback in the Sierra Nevada mountains, a place dear to my heart.
We only made 234 cases of our 2015 Alpha Mare Red Wine and a scant 142 cases of our 2016 Alpha Mare White Wine. They are both unique, powerful and very special and would make a wonderful gift under the tree.
Learn more about these wines at our website and skip the holiday stress by ordering your own 6 pack box. You won’t even need to wrap it!

A Note From Our Winemaker, Anne Vawter...
I’ve been tasting and writing the descriptors for our soon-to-be released wines this week and I am constantly struck with the descriptors that I use for our Russian River Chardonnay. It always sounds like the fall harvest in a glass. If you are wondering which white wine to pair with your holiday meal, don’t forget to include our 2016 Russian River Dutton Ranch Chardonnay at your table.
This famed Sonoma County vineyard planted on the coveted Goldridge soils has been our only source for Chardonnay since the 2011 vintage. I recently tasted the 2012 vintage and was wowed by its age-ability! My husband poured it for me blind and I thought it was delicious. I mentioned this to Lisa, our marketing and club manager and she found 10 bottles tucked away in our cellar...it is like finding gold! My goal was always to make an age-worthy Chardonnay, and now I know - we are.
If you'd like to taste a beautifully aged California Chardonnay, made to last, only 10 bottles left
You can take home our 2016 Russian River Dutton Ranch Chardonnay and enjoy it this Christmas or for Christmases to come, knowing that it will be delicious whenever you pop the cork.
This fresh, clean yet rich Chardonnay is constantly converting people who claim they don’t like Chardonnay…Try it yourself!
